We had such a wonderful time playing with Brandon and Sarah last week. We ate, ate, and ate some more! haha. After they left Ryan mentioned to me how funny that what we kept wanting Brandon and Sarah to experience down here was the food.
I called the gorging, the pre-Thanksgiving stretch! I am feeling pretty good about it!
Anyways, what didn't we eat? It was so fun showing them our fav rest., and hole-in-the-wall places! Thankfully, neither of them got sick either.
We were also in the car a bit, driving back and forth from Mexico City and we also made a trip to the Geiser. The car rides were great opportunities to sit and chat. Though, Easton was a bit squirmy, I tried to tune in as much as I could.
The Geiser is an 1-1 1/2 drive from our house, where a geiser has been tamed and feeds several large pools. They are like hot tubs and a lot of fun to visit. There is also a "tirolesa" there, or a zipline. It was one of the most intense things I have ever done! I am not joking, it was scary! So there are three ziplines and 2 bridges. All five events are over a desert canyon-type terrain. So you feel like you are hovering far above the Earth. The ziplines were fun, but the bridges were intense. One of them had little steps you take to get across. It was a brain workout not to get vertigo. Your line is attached to a zipline of course, but it is loose, so pretty much you feel like you are crossing without any security. I know this prob doesn't sound like a big deal, but it surprisingly was. I love testing heights, like skydiving, repelling, etc, but this was a whole new thing. Since, it has been awhile since I have done anything like this, I think that also added to the hype. One way or another, it was a lot of fun and a bit intense! Great sisterly bonding, hamming it up between Sarah and I so as to distract us from the heights.
Last week was great fun! Since then, we enjoyed/somewhat-endured a 15 hour temple trip with Easton on Saturday, put up Christmas decorations and I am in the middle of my prep for Thanksgiving. It takes me about a week of work to put on this great show! Ha! I LOVE Thanksgiving. And speaking of which, I should prob get off here to make and freeze my pie crusts!
Happy Thanksgiving all!
